Additional Thoughts

Fundraising Opportunities

These ideas will be considered later in the year if time and volunteers allows.

●     SCRIP

●     School Gift Shop

●     Janet’s Jungle

These ideas can be discussed among the school community and if a volunteer is willing to step up and organize the activity the SFA would provide support as needed. If a volunteer does not come forward to lead these, the idea will not be pursued by SFA due to time constraints.

●     Gloria Deo Bookfair (new)

●     Dine Outs

●     Box Tops -- being sponsored by Amanda Terrano

 

It should be noted that it was voted upon by the SFA Board that no dues will be collected this year. In previous years, $10/family was collected during school registration.
